Here’s a simple, satisfying twist on fish tacos that’s perfect for the Fourth of July or any summer occasion where you want to throw together a portable, delicious meal without too much hassle.
While I love fish tacos, the corn and gluten in most traditional versions wreck an otherwise-healthy meal.
Easy swap: Trade the shell for a crunchy, nutrient-packed lettuce wrap. (Just make sure the type of lettuce is strong enough to support the ingredients.)
I’ve created a delicious variation of fish tacos by combining wild-caught fish with creamy avocado and – here’s the twist – antioxidant- and flavor-rich sweet potatoes.

Altogether, these fish tacos pack an impressive fiber wallop while providing optimal protein and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids in the wild-caught white fish.
Major nutrients and flavor: Win-win!
These fish tacos are as easy to prepare and assemble as they are to eat. Guaranteed to be a big hit at your next gathering.
